So much potential down the drain. I really wanted to like this - I mean, Peter Dinklage and Summer Glau in the same movie? Abour LARPers fighting a demon? It sounds like just the kind of niche film that would appeal to the inner nerd. But this movie has had issues, and director Joe Lynch may have made an amazing version but the version we have has been re-edited and the result is a lot of "meh". The effects are subpar, the jokes fall mostly flat and even with the amazing talent involved, never really worked for me. Maybe one day we'll get the original version and be wowed, but this left me disappointed.

That's good news - I feel like I've been waiting for this movie for the better part of half my life.  I would be stoked for a 2014 release.  And I'm with you on hoping for the best; it's sounded so awesome from the moment I heard of it that if it turns out decidedly less so it would be a major disappointment.

This movie has been bounced around so long, I wasn't sure if it was ever going to get a release. But finally eOne Films has decided to pick this one up (and it has been rated R - a good sign they are moving forward quickly) and hopefully will see a 2014 release.

I have been following this film mainly because it sound like it will either be the best movie ever - a group of LARPers who unleash a real demon. Among said LARPers are Peter Dinklage (who has since become the main reason to watch Game of Thrones), the always welcome Summer Glau and True Blood alum Ryan Kwantan.

But awesomeness aside - it has also been reported that the film received major altercations after original director Joe Lynch was essentially booted out by production company, IndieVest and that Wade Bradley (owner of said company) completely changed the film to fit with his vision.

I want this film to not suck so badly that I'm happy it's getting a release - I just hope the version we get to experience is fun and hilarious - not a disaster.
